Congratulations and Welcome Back!

Dear 2008-2009 Room 18 Students and Families,

I would like to offer a hearty congratulations to all my former students of Room 18!

I believe (as you know) there is a lot more to learning than the STAR test! The test is only one small measure of a student’s learning in two subjects. The STAR does not take into account students amazing talents, personality, attitude, heart and other more important things that will bring them success in life.

Having said that, I want to celebrate the tremendous success of last year’s class on the STAR test. Overall, students did an amazing job on the test, and almost everyone improved significantly.

Special congratulations to the two female mathematicians who scored a perfect 600 on the Math portion of the STAR test! Congratulations to the handful of students who only missed 1 or 2 questions on the Math portion of the STAR.

I want to celebrate the huge improvement in almost everyone’s Reading and Math score! Congratulations for everyone’s effort and hard work on the test and all throughout the year!

You all are amazing kids and families and I wish you the BEST in 5th grade! Please continue to keep in touch with me throughout this year and beyond! You are a special group of people too me!

Love,

Mr. Callison
